THE CIDERY AND TAP HOUSE

Blue Mountain Cider is located in the historic Watermill Building, built in 1944 and located in Milton-Freewater Oregon in the Walla Walla Valley. A former fruit packing plant for the Watermill Food CO., the thick walls, partially underground construction and high ceilings keep the building naturally cool and make the structure the perfect venue for fermenting and storing cider. All production of Blue Mountain Cider is done on site from our estate apples, and our cider making staff utilizes top of the line fermentation equipment, storage, and bottling equipment to ensure the highest quality during all stages of production. The cidery currently has a fermentation capacity for 250,000 gallons but operates at around 100,000 gallons annually in order to maintain the highest quality standards. Blue Mountain Cider has on sight storage for more than 50,000 cases and the apples are stored just down the street at the Earl E. Brown and Sons packing warehouse. It’s not all work at the cidery however, as the Taproom for Blue Mountain Cider and game room are both located in the Watermill building. Stop by for a quick pint or schedule a cidery tour with Abe or Andrew for more information.
